Testimonials

Please note that the following testimonials are collected, supplied and maintained by Di Rosa Lawyers.

J.J., Seaton, , SA
"While represented by Dino Di Rosa I had been looked after, informed speedily about any new development and consequently advised, which was greatly appreciated".
D.M., Torrensville, , SA
"Craig Ellis explained everything in plain English which was very good and all the staff were excellent in their job" .
S.E., Two Wells, , SA
"I contacted quite a few Lawyer offices in Australia, not just South Australia, explaining in brief my situation, Di Rosa Lawyers were the only office that both understood my case and was able to assist within their professional field of expertise and resulted in a successful closure."
A.D. , Oakden SA
"They have been our family lawyers for years. They have done our wills, conveyancing, mum's estate and our daughter's car accident compensation claim. You can get them on the phone straight away if you need a bit of advice. We have always been very comfortable with how they do things. Everyone should have a trusted adviser to help through issues that come up in life."
LP , Redwook Park, SA
"Dino, thank you so much for helping me through my time of need. When my marriage broke down I didn't know where to turn. You calmed me down and showed me there was light at the end of the tunnel. And you were absolutely spoton about what I would be entitled to at settlement. This was a great comfort to me when it came time to pay your fees, which were quite reasonable given how long my case went for. Thanks once again."
KL , Glenelg North, SA
"The staff made us feel welcomed and comfortable and the solicitors answered any questions we had, and made it easy to understand."
James T , Allenby Gardens SA
"I came to Di Rosa Lawyers with no knowledge on how to go through the legal processes required. I am extremely happy with the outcome, also with all advice given to me. Please accept my thanks for all help given to me".
JM , Kidman Park SA
"Honesty, knowledge and follow-up. They almost made me feel like a friend; excellent people skills showed by Katherine and I felt she always showed empathy, but was fair."
BW , Tennyson, SA
After spending several weeks dealing with another lawyer, the Law Society and Consumer Affairs I went to you not expecting a favourable out-come but was more than happy with how our case was handled and also the outcome."
HC , Norwood, SA
At a difficult time, we received professional, empathetic service. Our matter was dealt with promptly with sound advice and a satisfactory outcome. Thank you.

Our firm provides total, "cradle to the grave" legal solutions across the areas of law that matter most to people from all walks of life:

  • family law,
  • personal injury,
  • wills, powers of attorney,
  • deceased estates,
  • property law and conveyancing,

We also speak Italian, Greek and Japanese.

We are a proudly South Australian and Australian law firm embracing all cultures, religions, beliefs and social persuasions.

Do you specialise in criminal law and traffic law?

Have you been charged with a criminal or traffic offence?
Whether you consider yourself guilty or innocent of the offence, you have a right to a legal defence – which could be all the difference between being found guilty or not guilty, or if guilty, whether you receive a relatively lenient as opposed to a harsh sentence.

  • Murder and Manslaughter
  • Rape and other sexual offences
  • Arson and other property damage cases
  • Fraud and other white collar crimes
